Nostradamus speaks of a "King of the World" called "Chiren" who will come from France and lead the western army into its victory over the invading Islamic forces after the initial setback. "Chiren", also mentioned as "Chyren" and "Chyren Selin" in various quatrains, appear to be a key player during the World War III, similar to, but even greater in stature than Roosevelt, Hitler or Churchill during the Second World War. Nostradamus indicates that this leader will come from France. Along with Chiren, there will come a Pope, probably from France, who will also play a crucial role during the Third World War.

A few of the quatrains of Nostradamus on "Chiren" are given below -

The great Chyren will be the Chief of the World, after "Plus oultre" loved, feared and dreaded. His fame and praise go beyond the heavens and he will be greatly satisfied with the sole title of victor - VI.70

Of Trojan blood he will be born with a German heart and will rise to a very great power. He will drive out the foreign, Arabic nation and return the Church to her early glory - V.74

Selin king, Italy peaceful, kingdoms united by the Christian King of the World. When he dies he will want to lie in Blois territory, having chased the pirates from the sea - IV.77

The great man led captive from a foreign land, chained in gold, offered to King CHYREN. He who in Ausonia, Milan will lose the war and all his army put to fire and sword - IV.34

The king of Europe will come like a griffon, accompanied by those of the North; he will lead a great troop of red and white, they will go against the king of Babylon - X.80

The French Pope, who is contemporary to Chiren is also mentioned in his prophecies -

Not from Spain but from ancient France will he be elected for the trembling Ship. He will make a promise to the enemy who will cause great plague during his reign - V.49

During this time there will also be a schism in the Vatican with an Anti-Pope challenging the Pope for the Papal seat -

By the appearance of the fake holiness, the seat will be betrayed to the enemies, in the night when they thought to sleep safely; the people of Liege will march near Brabant - VI.30

The Papal seat will be moved away from Rome and the major powers will recognize this seat -

Through the powers of three temporal kings, the sacred seat will be put in another place, where the substance of the body and the spirit will be restored and received as the true seat - VIII.99

At the end of the War, Chiren will return to Rome with the Pope and the Papacy will be restored -

The great Celt will enter Rome leading a crowd of exiled and banished. The great Pastor will put to death every man who was united over the Alps against the Cock - VI.28

In between, the Anti-Pope will die in the hands of the invading forces inspite of an attempt to negotiate peace. The coming of Chiren - the Great Monarch and the great French Pope has been foretold in many other prophecies over the ages. Some of these prophecies also shed light on the events that will take place during the World War III. Some of the relevant portions of these prophecies are reproduced here -

Merlin (7th century)
"There will come a German Anti-Pope. Italy and Germany will be sorely troubled. A French King will restore the true Pope."
"In the meanwhile a powerful Prince out of the East shall provoke him to battle. Against whom the Lion shall march with all his forces and pitching his camp on this side (west) of the Euphrates, shall await him. If the Prince shall come over the river the Lion shall be overcome; but he (Lion) shall cross the river with his army and give his enemy a bloody defeat and be master of all the East.

St. Hildegard (d. 1179)

"Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent
(USA?) by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part be submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the East through a Tiger and a Lion (two other nations?). The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the laws of God."

"Peace will return to Europe when the white flower
(Bourbon Lily : Great Monarch) again takes possession of the throne of France. During this time of peace the people will be forbidden to carry weapons and iron will be used only for making agricultural implements and tools. Also during this period the soil will be very productive and many Jews, heathens and heretics will join the Church."

The above prophecy mentions the comet (similar to Nostradamus I.69) which will strike the ocean causing tidal waves and inundation leading to many deaths followed by pestilence. It also speaks of the devastation of the USA and of the Great Monarch who will restore peace and the Papacy.

Abbot Werdin d'Otrante (13th cent.)
"The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede Antichrist."

"The nations will be in wars for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of redemption on his forehead, and after the victory of the Pope and the Great Monarch peace will reign on earth."

"The Great Monarch will come to restore peace and the Pope will share in the victory."

David Poreaus (d. 1622)
"The Great Monarch will be of French descent, large forehead, large dark eyes, light brown wavy hair and an eagle nose. He will crush the enemies of the Pope and will conquer the East."

This prophecy gives a physical description of the Great Monarch. Note the physical similarities with the present French President Jaques Chirac. The name of Chirac is also close approximation of the name "Chiren", the Great Monarch who also happens to come from France. However, in other prophecies the age of the Great Monarch has been given as 40 years and is often described as young and lame in one foot, which contradicts this interpretation. It is possible that "Chiren" turns out to be a high ranking military officer. "Chyren" or "Chiren" is often interpreted as Henryc or Henry.

Rabanus Maurus was Benedictine Abbot of Fulda and Archbishop of Mainz. His review of prophetic writings led him to write:
"Our principal doctors agree in announcing to us that towards the end of time one of the descendants of the kings of France shall reign over all the Roman Empire; and that he shall be the greatest of the Empire; and that he shall be the greatest of the French monarchs, and the last of his race."

"After having most happily governed his kingdom, he will go to Jerusalem, and depose on Mount Olive his sceptre and crown. This shall be the end and conclusion of the Roman and Christian Empire."

St. Caesarius, Archbishop of Arles relates a prophecy: 
"When the entire world, and in a special manner France, and in France more particularly the provinces of the north, of the east, and above all, that of Lorraine and Champagne, shall have been a prey to the greatest miseries and trials, then the provinces shall be succored by a prince who had been exiled in his youth, and who shall recover the crown of the lilies."

This prince shall extend his dominion over the entire universe. At the same time there will be a great Pope, who will be most eminent in sanctity and most perfect in every quality. This Pope shall have with him the Great Monarch, a most virtuous man, who shall be a scion of the holy race of the French kings. This Great Monarch will assist the Pope in the reformation of the whole earth. Many princes and nations that are living in error and impiety shall be converted, and an admirable peace shall reign among men during many years, because the wrath of God shall be appeased through their repentance, penance, and good works. There will be one common law, only one faith, one baptism, one religion. All nations shall recognize the Holy See of Rome, and shall pay homage to the Pope. But after some considerable time fervor shall cool, iniquity shall abound, and moral corruption shall become worse than ever, which shall bring upon mankind the last and worst persecution of the Antichrist, and the end of the world."

John of Vitiguerro (13th Century)
The pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for twenty-five months or more because, during all that time there will be no Pope in Rome... After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions.

This prophecy indicates that there will not be any Pope in Rome for almost two years.

John of the Cleft Rock (14th Century)
Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem.

At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith.

Here it seems that one Pope will flee Rome and will die in exile. Another Pope, probably the French Pope, will be elected later. This echoes the previous prophecy. However, it does not quite tally with the version that it is the French Pope who will flee.

Pope Pius X (1835 - 1914)
 "What I have seen is terrifying! Will I be the one, or will it be a successor? What is certain is that the Pope will leave Rome and, in leaving the Vatican, he will have to pass over the dead bodies of his priests!" "Do not tell anyone this while I am alive."

 I saw one of my successors taking to flight over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in disguise somewhere and after a short retirement he will die a cruel death. The present wickedness of the world is only the beginning of the sorrows which must take place before the end of the world.. "Respect for God has disappeared from human hearts. They wish to efface even God's memory. This perversity is nothing less than the beginning of the last days of the world."

The Third Secret of Fatima


The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917. 

I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine. 

After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: 'Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in White 'we had the impression that it was the Holy Father'. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God. 


The above is the official version of the Third secret released by the Vatican after much speculations. But it is suspected by many that Vatican did not publish the whole text of the Third Secret. Moreover, the interpretation of the above text by the Vatican, which was much more in length than the Third Secret itself, was that the actual meaning of the Third Secret is not what it seems. Vatican interpreted the above as foretelling the Assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II which took place in the 1980s and not the actual assassination of the Pope on a future date, which the Third Secret appears to speak of. Surprisingly, the published portion of the Third Secret, if we accept the plain text without any interpretations, prophesizes the death of a fleeing Pope and other clergy men at the hands of soldiers following a revolution which engulfs the Vatican. This is very similar to the other prophecies and visions that have been quoted in this page on the same subject.

This Pope might be Pope John Paul II or more likely the one who would be elected after him. It is very unlikely that the age and the physical condition of the present Pope, who is mostly wheel-chair bound, would permit him to flee in the manner described in these prophecies. After the death of the Pope at the hands of soldiers, as the next prophecy states, there would be several competing Popes at the same time but ultimately, a French Pope would be elected abroad and would be accepted universally as the true Pope. Finally, this Pope would return to the Vatican with the Great Monarch after the war and re-establish the Papacy in Vatican. A literal interpretation of the Third Secret thus conforms to the other prophecies and the twisted "interpretation" of the Vatican seems to be a denial of the obvious. In this connection, one of Sister Lucia's letter hints at the role of Russia in the great war and the attack on Vatican -

Sister Lucia's 12th May 1982 letter to the Pope

"The third part of the secret refers to Our Lady's words: 'If not [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated' (13-VII-1917). 

The third part of the secret is a symbolic revelation, referring to this part of the Message, conditioned by whether we accept or not what the Message itself asks of us: 'If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, etc.'. 

Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors. And if we have not yet seen the complete fulfillment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides. If we do not reject the path of sin, hatred, revenge, injustice, violations of the rights of the human person, immorality and violence, etc. 

And let us not say that it is God who is punishing us in this way; on the contrary it is people themselves who are preparing their own punishment. In his kindness God warns us and calls us to the right path, while respecting the freedom he has given us; hence people are responsible".

As per the Vatican's interpretation, the conversion of Russia took place after the fall of Communism. But many people think otherwise and if the other prophecies of Russia's role in the WW III are considered, the fall of communism was not the conversion of Russia that the Vatican seeks to portray but worse is yet to come from Russia.

Capuchin Friar (1776)
"All the ecclesiastics, both secular and regular, shall be stripped of all their possessions, and of every kind of property, and obliged to beg from lay persons their food and everything necessary for their support, and for the worship of God. All religious orders will be abolished, except one having the rules of the most rigid and most severe institute of the ancient monks. During these calamities the Pope shall die. Through the death of the Supreme Pontiff the Church will be reduced to the most painful anarchy, because from three hostile powers three popes will be contemporaneously elected: one Italian, another German, the third Greek, by force of arms, shall be placed on the throne. During this time much human blood shall be shed in Italy, and many cities, country towns, and castles shall be brought to ruin, with the death of many thousands of persons.

"By the Catholic clergy and people the true and lawful Pope will be elected, who shall be a man of great holiness and goodness of life, selected from the surviving monastic order mentioned above.

"A scion of the Carlovingian race, by all considered extinct, will come to Rome to behold and admire the clemency of this Pontiff, who will crown him, and declare him to be the legitimate Emperor of the Romans, and from the Chair of St. Peter, the Pope will lift up the standard, the crucifix, and will give it to the new emperor.

"This new emperor, with the robust Italian and French people, and with those of other nations, will form a most Powerful host, called the Church Army, through which he shall destroy the Ottoman Empire, all heresies, and shall also totally defeat the Emperor of the North, who is called Mystic Anti-Christ.

"The above mentioned new emperor, with the assistance of God and of the Pope, will cooperate to the reformation of abuses; will assume (with the free consent of the Pope) the management of the temporal government; will assign a decent pension to the Supreme Pontiff, and also the bishops and clergy: and they all, being detached from earthly covetousness, will live in peace, which shall last till the end of time.

"Finally, the Pope will select twelve subjects of his religion, whom he will send through the world to preach missions. They shall have the power of converting the nations to the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, excepting the Hebrews, who are reserved for the end of the world."

Abbot "Merlin" Joachim (1480-1541)

Abbot Joachim Merlin was a canon of Notre Dame; in 1529 he became the grand penitentiary after being imprisoned for two years in the court of Francis I, and he was exiled in Nantes for a year because of his opposition to the Lutherans. Upon his return to Paris in 1530 he became the vicar-general. The following lengthy prophecy of his is about the Great Pope:

"After many prolonged sufferings endured by Christians, and after a too great effusion of innocent blood, the Lord shall give peace and happiness to the desolated nations. A remarkable pope will be seated on the pontifical throne, under the special protection of the angels. Holy and full of gentleness, he shall undo all wrong, he shall recover the states of the Church, and reunite the exiled temporal powers. He shall be revered by all people, and shall recover the kingdom of Jerusalem. As the only Pastor he shall reunite the Eastern to the Western Church, and thus only one faith will be in vigor. The sanctity of this beneficent Pontiff will be so great that the highest potentates shall bow before his presence. This holy man shall crush the arrogance of religious schism and heresy. All men will return to the primitive Church, and there shall be only one pastor, one law, one master --- humble, modest, and fearing God. The true God of the Jews, our Lord Jesus Christ, will make everything prosper beyond all human hope, because God alone can and will pour down on the wounds of humanity the oily balm of sweetness.

"The heavens proclaim the glory of God, and the faithful are in joy and happiness, because the Lord has vouchsafed to be merciful to them. He shall invite his elect to the banquet of the Lamb, where melodious canticles and harmonious concerts will be heard.

"The power of this Pontiff's holiness will be so great as to be able to check the fury and impetuosity of threatening waves. Mountains shall be lowered before him, the sea shall be dried up, the dead shall be raised, the churches shall be reopened and altars erected.

"It should be known that there will be two heads, one in the East, and the other in the West. This Pope shall break the weapons and scatter the fighting hordes. He will be the joy of God's elect. This angelic pope will preach the gospel in every country. Through his zeal and solicitude the Greek Church shall be forever reunited to the Catholic Church.

"Before, however, being firmly and solidly established in the Holy See, there will be innumerable wars and violent conflicts during which the sacred throne shall be shaken. But through the favor of divine clemency, moved by the prayers of the faithful, everything will succeed so well that they shall be able to sing hymns of thanksgiving to the glory of the Lord.

"This holy Pope shall be both pastor and reformer. Through him the East and West shall be in everlasting concord. The city of Babylon shall then be the head and guide of the world. Rome, weakened in temporal power, shall forever preserve her spiritual dominion, and shall enjoy great peace. During these happy days the Angelic Pope shall be able to address to Heaven prayers full of sweetness. The dispersed nation shall also enjoy tranquillity. Six and a half years after this time the Pope will render his soul to God. The end of his days shall arrive in an arid province, situated between a river and a lake near the mountains...

"At the beginning, in order these happy results, having need of a powerful temporal assistance, this holy Pontiff will ask the cooperation of the generous monarch of France. At that time a handsome monarch, a scion of King Pepin, will come as a pilgrim to witness the splendor of this glorious pontiff, whose name shall begin with "R."... A temporal throne being vacant, the Pope shall place on it this king whose assistance he shall ask.

"When a monster shall appear in the sky, thou shalt find a ready escape towards the east, and after nine years thou shalt render thy soul to God.

"A man of remarkable sanctity will be his successor in the Pontifical chair. Through him God will work so many prodigies that all men shall revere him, and no person will dare to oppose his holy precepts. He shall not allow the clergy to have many benefices. He will induce them to live by tithes and offerings of the faithful. He shall interdict pomp in dress, and all immorality in dance and songs. He will preach the gospel in person, and exhort all honest ladies to appear in public without any ornament of gold or precious stones. After having occupied the Holy See for a long time he shall happily return to the Lord.

"His three immediate successors shall be men of exemplary holiness. One after the other will be models of virtue, and shall work miracles, confirming the teaching of their predecessors. Under their government the Church shall spread, and these Popes shall be called the Angelic Pastors."

Here it is mentioned that the name of the Pope will begin with "R". Whether this could be indicating the papacy of Cardinal Ratzinger, only time will tell. The work of this particular Pope, recovering Jerusalem during his reign and establishing peace and unification of Churches, perhaps signifies the reason why St. Malachy calls him "The Glory of the Olive". However, the allusion to war during his Papacy is also significant - "Before, however, being firmly and solidly established in the Holy See, there will be innumerable wars and violent conflicts during which the sacred throne shall be shaken."

St. Malachy O'Morgair (1095?-1148)

The last but one Pope before the end of the world is named by Malachi as De Gloria Olivae or "From the Glory of the Olives": The Order of Saint Benedict has claimed that this pope will come from their ranks. Saint Benedict reportedly prophesied that before the end of the world his Order, known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its fight against evil.

Starting from Pope Celestine II in 1143, Malachy mentioned 112 Popes till the "End of the World". Against each of their names, he mentioned some symbolic descriptions, which were found to be amazingly accurate. The last 10 Popes were described by Malachy in the following manner -

1. The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church.

2. Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope's reign saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere.

3. Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler.

4. An Angelic Shepherd. PIUS XII. 1939-1958. This Pope had an affinity for the spiritual world and received visions which have not been made public. Peter Bander says Pius XII "has emerged as one of the great Popes of all time," and he "was in the truest sense of the word an Angelic Pastor to the flock..."

5. Pastor and Mariner. JOHN XXIII. 1958-1963. John was a pastor to the world, much beloved, and the Patriarch of Venice. The connection to "mariner" is thus remarkable.

6. Flower of Flowers. PAUL VI. 1963-1978. Paul's coat-of-arms depicts three fleurs-de-lis, corresponding to Malachay's prophecy. His coat of arms included three fleurs-de-lis (iris blossoms).

7. Of the Half Moon. JOHN PAUL I. 1978-1978. John Paul I was elected Pope on August 26, 1978, when there was a half moon. He reigned 33 days, that is, about one month, when he died, although many think he was murdered. He was the 109th Pope - is "De Medietate Lunae" (Of the Half Moon). The corresponding pope was John Paul I (1978-78), who was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope on August 26, 1978, when the moon appeared exactly half full. It was in its waning phase. He died the following month, soon after an eclipse of the moon.

8. The Labor of the Sun. JOHN PAUL II. 1978-2005. Pope John Paul II  was born on May 18, 1920. On that date in the morning there was a near total eclipse of the sun in the Southern Hemisphere. Malachy's prophecy regarding the 110th Pope is "De Labore Solis" (Of the Solar Eclipse, or, From the Toil of the Sun). John Paul II's date of burial was set for 8th April, 2005 when another solar eclipse takes place in the Southern Hemisphere, thus making Malachy's prophecy more meaningful. The burial must take place within 4 to 6 days of the death of a Pope and even if we consider that human intervention made it to coincide with the solar eclipse which happened on the 5th Day from his death, still no rule was bent to make that happen and this was one of the two solar eclipses that takes place in 2005.

9. The Glory of the Olive. The Order of St. Benedict has said this Pope will come from their order. It is interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives. This Pope will reign during the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of. The 111th prophesy is "Gloria Olivae" (The Glory of the Olive). At the time of election there would be only one Cardinal named Paul Augustine Mayer who is Benedictine, but he is above 80 and cannot vote although he can be elected a Pope. So there is a rare chance that the next Pope would be a Benedictine. St. Malachy may have meant something else. He could have meant a Pope with a formerly Jewish background or in some way connected to Israel, a Pope who takes the name of Benedict or even be black in color. Hopefully, we would come to understand that after the Pope is elected.

Update : - Cardinal Ratzinger was elected as Pope on 19th April, 2005 and took the name Pope Benedict XVI. The decision may have been taken consciously, as Vatican approves of St. Malachy's prophecy. St. Benedict established the order of the Benedictines or "Olivetans" as they are popularly known. Although Ratzinger is not from the order but by taking the name Benedict, who started the order, the prophecy was perhaps made to fulfill. The true reason for assigning the phrase "The Glory of the Olive" to this Pope may yet lie in his future deeds rather than in the choice of his name, if the prophecies of Abbott Joachim Merlin are anything to go by.

10. PETER THE ROMAN - This final Pope will likely be Satan, taking the form of a man named Peter who will gain a worldwide allegiance and adoration. He will be the final antichrist which prophecy students have long foretold. If it were possible, even the very elect would be deceived. The 112th prophesy states: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."

Malachy's final words, "Rome, the seat of the Vatican, will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people."

Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (17th Century)
The fifth period of the Church, which began circa 1520, will end with the arrival of the holy Pope and of the powerful Monarch who is called "Help From God" because he will restore everything. The fifth period is one of affliction, desolation, humiliation, and poverty for the Church. Jesus Christ will purify His people through cruel wars, famines, plagues, epidemics, and other horrible calamities. He will also afflict and weaken the Latin Church with many heresies. It is a period of defections, calamities and exterminations. Those Christians who survive the sword, plague and famines, will be few on earth.
These are the evil times, a century full of dangers and calamities. Heresy is everywhere, and the followers of heresy are in power almost everywhere. but God will permit a great evil against His Church: Heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they will break into the Church. They will enter Italy and lay Rome waste; they will burn down churches and destroy everything.

Here are some prophecies worth mentioning of the Great Monarch, because of their similarity and statements that he will walk with a limp....

(Old German prophecy): "He will be lame afoot ... "

(Anne-Catherine Emmerich, 19th Century): "God touched the sinew of his hip. He was in great pain and from that day on, he walked with a limp ... "

(Peasant Jasper, Germany): "This Prince shall mount his horse on the right-hand side, because he limps from one foot .... "

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, July 12, 1820: "I had a vision of the holy Emperor Henry. I saw him at night kneeling alone at the foot of the main altar in a great and beautiful church . . . and I saw the Blessed Virgin coming down all alone. She laid on the altar a red cloth covered with white linen. She placed a book inlaid with precious stones. She lit the candles and the perpetual lamp . . . Then came down the Saviour Himself clad in priestly vestiments. He was carrying the chalice and the veil. Two Angels were serving Him and two more were following . . . His chasuble was a full and heavy mantle in which red and white could be seen in transparency, and gleaming with jewels . . . Although there was no altar bell, the cruets were there. The wine was red as blood, and thgere was also some water. The Mass was short. The Gospel of St. John was not read at the end. When the Mass has ended, Mary came up to Henry (the Emperor), and she extended her right hand towards him, saying that it was in recognition of his purity. Then, she urged him not to falter. Thereupon I saw an angel, and he touched the sinew of his hip, like Jacob. He (Henry) was in great pain, and from that day on, he walked with a limp . . . "

Here the name of the Great Monarch is mentioned an Henry. Some people interpret Chyren, mentioned by Nostradamus as Henryc or Henry.

Here are some prophecies on the death of the Great Monarch...

Cataldu: "He will at length lay down his Crown in Jerusalem."

Bl. R. Maurus (9th Century): "He will go to Jerusalem, and lay down his Sceptre and Crown on Mount Olive. Thus shall come the end of the Christian Roman Empire."

Monk Adso (10th Century): "He will finally go to Jerusalem and lay down his Sceptre and Crown upon the Mount of Olives. Immediately afterwards, Antichrist will come."

St. Augustine (5th Century): "He shall give up the ghost at Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives."

St. Remy (5/6th Century): "At the end of his most glorious reign, he shall go to Jerusalem, and shall lay down his Crown and Sceptre on the Mount of Olives."

However in IV.77 Nostradamus says that "When he dies he will want to lie in Blois territory, having chased the pirates from the sea - " . Although this seems to contradict the above Prophecies, it might be that Chiren dies in Jerusalem but his body will be brought to France, his country of birth and will be laid to rest there. There is an alternative translation which says that "...he will want to lie in Blessed territory...", in which case, the blessed territory might be Jerusalem / Israel.

In conclusion, it can be said that all the prophecies broadly agree that "A Great Monarch" from France and "A Great Pope" will appear during the war and will play a key role in the victory of the West and establishment of subsequent peace. However, these prophecies also indicate that the common assumption of a Christian versus Muslim war scenario might be too simplistic. Even with a grand alliance among the Islamic countries, the Western alliance would not face such a tough challenge unless powerful countries like Russia or China ally with the Islamic nations. Evidently, natural disasters in USA and elsewhere, diseases (natural or due to use of biological weapon), use of nuclear weapons, internal strife in Europe and in the Vatican and particularly the striking of a Comet at the Sea causing tidal waves and millions of deaths will all contribute to the course of the war.

After the war is over, a period of peace will prevail in the world. However, after some time, tribulations will once again arise in the world and in the Vatican and finally the present civilization will come to an end with the event referred to as the "Three Days of Darkness". It is said that after those three days only a quarter of the human population will survive. The prophecies on post World War III events up to the "Three Days of Darkness" will be discussed in a separate article.
